“Very Good Value and Great Staff”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed February 7, 2013

Clean, comfortable room with plenty of space for working while traveling. Easy to get around from this location. Good restaurant, free Wifi, and buffet breakfast. Great staff both at the front desk and in the restaurant. I'll be back!
Oh, and the cookies at the front desk are a great treat.

Room Tip: Always ask for a quiet room away from elevators and vending machines.

I stayed at this hotel on the 28th of January 2013. My purpose was to stay at the hotel to be closer to the airport and to leave my car there for 5 days.

Pros:
Great deal on a room and up to ten days of parking (even without a Groupon it was $79 a night.
Room was spacious and well appointed. It appeared to have undergone a recent renovation.
Front desk agent was helpful and friendly.
Frequent airport shuttles and airport pickups by calling hotel were great.
Even though I didn't use it, the downstairs restaurant and bar was open until 10pm.
I also didn't use the pool but several people seemed to be enjoying it.

Cons:
The bathroom sink being in the main room instead of in the bathroom was a little weird.
Carpet between bathroom and main room was knotted and coming apart.
Neighborhood seems sketchy.
The Hot Tub was broken.
Airplane noise, while only moderate, was still audible in the room.
Bed was a bit too firm.

Room Tip: Ask for a room away from the elevator as some of them abut it.

This is our second time at this hotel for just 1 night so we can catch an International flight out the next day and it is great. Easy shuttle pick-up and also if you want to go downtown they shuttle you back to the airport where you can catch the red train into downtown. The rooms are comfortable and the staff can not be any better with the front desk person named Harvey having the best customer service I have seen in a long time.

Nice, friendly staff, always smiling and very helpful. The rooms were large, comfortable and smelled great. The breakfast was nice with great variety and the breakfast room comfortable and cozy. Homey atmosphere when your walk into the lobby, always greeted with a smile and homemade cookies at night! Airport shuttle was fantastic, quick and efficient. Will definitely stay here again my next trip to Portland.

Recently spent two nights. Whomever does the hiring here does an amazing job. EVERYone was nice. The desk clerks were great. Wait staff in restaurant also wonderful. The young girl who takes care of the brunch was so friendly and helpful. The free brunch had a large variety and was fresh and hot. Impressed. The facility was very clean and the bed was soooo comfortable. I will stay there next time I am in the area.

I live 3 hours from the Portland airport. Often if I'm flying somewhere, I need to spend the night coming, going, or both. After not having a good experience at another hotel, I tried Country Inn and Suites. I have stayed a total of 6 nights for recents trips. This week my friend and I flew into Portland at midnight with the temperature at 28 degrees. After a phone call, our shuttle driver was very prompt and cheerful. In my 6 stays with this hotel, I've always had very positive experiences. I definitely will continue to stay with them.

If you're visiting Portland, have a car, and don't mind driving to get to downtown Portland, this place is a fantastic value.

My room is clean and very comfortable. I was apprehensive about the noise from aircraft due to the proximity of the airport, but in my 4 days here I was never disturbed by the noise. They are noticeable during the day, but not loud. And I never noticed them at night.

Breakfast is provided, with a great selection, including Belgian waffles. There's also a couple of other hot items (eggs, sausages, etc), a nice selection of bread and pastries, cereal, oatmeal, fruits and drinks. There's plenty of seating, and the staff keeps the counter well stocked, even when it is near the end of the period when they serve breakfast. Real plates and utensils are provided, not the disposable stuff.

There's a small but adequate gym on the ground floor. There are cardio machines as well as one multi-function weight machine, all pretty new and works great. There's an indoor pool as well but I did not try it. There's also a laundry room with 2 washers and 2 dryers.

A shuttle to the airport is provided. For those driving, it's a bit of a drive to get to Portland. But if you're going to Vancouver, WA, or to one of the many attractions along the Columbia River, it's actually very convenient. Bonneville Dam is definitely worth a visit, especially when the salmon are swimming up the ladders, and the waterfalls there are beautiful.

When I visit Portland next time, I'm definitely staying here again.

Room Tip: The rooms facing Alderwood Road might be a little quieter, but aircraft noise wasn't a big issue...
